safe? not just school environments, but in our community where we will not have these fears? where we will not be afraid of mass shootings and these assault weapons, which are so rampant in this country today. >> sean burke, which like to respond to the ad that says are the president is more important than yours, then why is skeptical about putting on a secured in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards? do you think this is a pro. ? >> good morning. i also do not like anything that is done out of fear. i do not think fear is going to be good for school safety and i don't think it is good for the and states. i don't think it will produce anything that will be positive in the way of changes in school safety. i don't think it is inappropriate at to be running in the u.s., no. >> can you elaborate your responses to the newtown shooting and what you think ought to be done to increase safety in schools, sean burke? >> first of all, we promote reasonableness. i don't think there is call to go off on wild tangents or go out of the norm with a lot of ideas that are coming that
whole and total package. for years i have said, to have a growing economy and a just social environment, we needed to make as americans, critical investments. you hit three of those critical investments. you talked about research. absolutely critical investment in the future growth of the economy, and to solve today and tomorrow's problems. that's research, most of which, interestingly, is funded directly by the federal government, by the national institutes of health, darpa or one of the other federal agencies or indirectly through the research tax credit that we provide for businesses to engage in research. so research being one of the investments that lead to economic growth. you mentioned the second one, very interesting, and that's education. well-educated work force will be competitive across the world. that is the most critical investment. again, a role for the federal government, certainly a role for states and local governments, but a role for the american society that cannot be ignored. research education. and you drew it very, very correctly, and that is the manufacturing tha
the case be made for all women in a college environment? you have been the president of such a school. >> one of the things people think is a single sex school is all women. we have some male professors. the tilt is female, but we have male professors. they are not sitting in a convent. you have other school that are close by. so, none of these children or young people are being koiserred. it's an important point to make. a lot of them think they are going to be. however, i think there are lots of benefits. there are some disadvantages. there are 4,000 plus colleges in the united states. 4,000. you have clernlg colleges for african-american. 45 women's colleges. you have one founded for jewish people, why not variety? i didn't go to a single sex school. a lot of women who are achievers didn't. some want to make that choice. they want to learn and be focused. they want to have the opportunity to learn without the distraction of young men in the room and they are being prepared to go into a world with all the tools that make them unintimidated by men. they have learned how to argument.
environment? we had 27 officers in school, and they were a valuable resource inside our schools. but i think it's a delicate balance, and it would be my grandchildren that we would be protecting more than my children. in any essence, i want to make sure our kids -- schools are learning environments and not armed encampments. we want to make sure we are protecting the learning environment. >> are their armed officers, staff in prince georges schools? >> yeah, they have officers in some of the schools. and you go to look at urban jurisdictions inside the country and there's definitely a lot of that. and that tends to be in schools where you have criminal activity going on, like gang activity, for example, and sometimes the officers can be used to diffuse that, and the fact that they have the gun is not the main reason they are there, and that's, again, the intervention and prevention part that makes sense. >> governor o'malley proposed making it a misdemeanor to not report a lost or stolen gun. would that help? >> later we can trace the gun back, and we contact mr. mccarthy and we say your gun
, in a safe way, in a way that helps the environment, in a way that helps the economy and the local community and all of the above. but we've been an entitlement -- in entitlement processes around the country that have taken over 20 years. so if you think about projects -- and we're in one right now that i won't name exactly where it is, but it's been over 20 years. we have a project down in tampa, florida, that took us 21 years to open. so it's now the most successful shopping center in that region. it's created at least 3-4,000 permanent jobs. a huge spin-off and a huge catalyst for all kinds of growth. but why should it take us 21 years to do something that's really good? and i think that's the problem. you know, regulation is necessary, but regulation has to have its place. there has to be a balance. and, you know, sort of determining the size of government, a lot of people have said, it should be the people's will, but it doesn't feel that way. and bigger is not always better. and, you know, the idea of a faster and smarter government, you know, i said earlier is really sort of like an o
's done. >> sean: but dunn is wrong, it isn't a hostile environment and charlie rangel is wrong, lack of diversity-- and prominent liberals that work for obama they're making the claims out of thin air. >> i know many women, sean, i know many women there very satisfied and very happy and proud-- >> and thrown overboard in a moment when she could have used some support, but i won't mention names, isn't that true? >> she is, she is perhaps the-- >> and treated badly. >> and she was supported, she was supported. >> sean: should i name names? >> he she was supported by this president and able to do a fine job and delivering not only the reelection, but the ongoing-- >> sean, the president actually had to have a meeting of all the women in his white house, in his inner circle-- not the inner circle, but the white house when the complaints were overriding ap the president sat down with them and started meeting off looking at his watch and saying, are there really concerns here i need to know about? this president is completely dismissive. >> sean: why were women getting paid less then, penn
on a dime and now we're moving into a completely different environment. it's not an environment so different that all of these things are going to happen. and an assault weapons ban is sill a heavy lift. remember, the assault weapons ban we had had a lot of loopholes in it. but the other elements, it's just a different world. and i think national rifle association is no longer supreme in the same way and many of their own members i think are going to start to feel differently. when you get a joe manchin of west virginia coming out and saying "i hunt, i don't need more than three bullets in a magazine" and you get other long-standing strong proponents of the second amendment saying it's time for some changes, we're moving into a different world. >> brown: david kopel, do you think the politics have changed here or do you expect -- well, there certainly will be challenges legislatively. will there also be challenges legally? >> there will certainly be legal challenges because one important thing -- the way things have changechanged is we now have the supreme court having affirmed that the seco
, but that can change with the context of the time, the environment the president and the congress is presented with, and there are so many serious challenges facing the american people. if the president can find a way with his own involvement and then with his staff's of bridging the gap between himself and the republicans in the congress to get things done on our debt, on guns, on immigration, on the environment, on energy, on education, he can go down as a great second term president. he's got a great opportunity. but he's got to get personally involved in the process itself, and he's got to understand where the other side is coming from and he's got to try to accommodate some of their concerns. and if he does that, i think he can be a great second term president and have a better second term than his first. >> we got a lot of indications about what he was thinking about in his last news conference of the first term this week, and he answered critics who talked about the lack of diversity in his new cabinet, but they are losing another minority, obviously, with the departure of ken salazar a
that is we create a regulatory environment, tax environment, and competitive regime here in this country that actually allows our businesses and workers to win in that global wheat competitive game at the moment. we have some extraordinary assets in this country. we have a highly educated and motivated work force that in many respects outperforms, not out educated about from a point of view workers in virtually every effort country. we have the most efficient capital markets in the world. our companies have the lowest cost of capital of any companies anywhere around the globe. we have a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation and capitalist system and commitment to a capitalist system that is the envy of virtually every other country in the world, and we also have increasingly as elude it to in the earlier panel have always had a very strong natural resources, but with shale oil and gas and the incredible strength of our agricultural industry we have a great natural resources as well so there's a lot to be bullish about in this country in terms of our economic opportunities, but this f
are saying and then move on to the serious discussion of tax reform and environment issues. so i see it in a sense the opposite way. i say let's get this done, the sequestration part in the debt ceiling in the next six weeks and then move on. those who are saying let's do it dribble by turbo, they are the ones who would be undermining the effort to sit down and have a serious discussion of tax reform. >> we've got about two minutes left. francine. >> the question about itemize deductions. what s-sierra thought of having a cab, that people can use it for whatever they want for mark h., whatever. >> i think the problem with the cap is that it has to seriously consequence, especially for charitable contributions. because a substantial portion of the charitable contributions come from the very wealthy. ii think the figure may be something like well over half comes from people with income over a million. it may be more than not. so the problem with the cap is do it have anything significant consequences for charitable contributions and perhaps for state and local taxes. so i think a batte
. it was a big grab bag, $787 billion of goodies that included many things for energy and the environment. i don't recall offhand the overall ratings for energy but i know a lot were included in the economic stimulus bill. host: is president obama making fewer promises that he was initially? guest: absolutely, the 2012 campaign was a campaign of attacks. when we look back at the moments of the campaign, as you look at the debates, what they were sitting on the campaign trail, what they were saying in commercials -- they spent some months of the time attacking each other and relatively little really laying out their agenda in any detail. particularly, mitt romney did not provide any details about his tax plan but even obama spent some much time attacking the romney that there were fewer promises made. there was less of an agenda. host: one last look at theobameter - he has made progress on 73% of his promises. thank you for being here this morning. coming up next is our regular america by the numbers segment where we will look at how american students are performing in schools and how they rank c
of politicians, current and former, have joined forces to create a partisan-free environment, and called "no labels" they are pledged to a simple obligation, stop fight ing and start fixing. will the compromise and chances for success be for no label? we are joined by former presidential candidate jon huntsman and congressman joe manchin next. bacon? -oh! -oh! oh! [ female announcer ] with 40 delicious progresso soups at 100 calories or less, there are plenty of reasons people are saying "progress-oh!" share your story for a chance to win a progress-oh! makeover in hollywood. go to facebook.com/progresso to enter. >>> with me now, senator joe manchin, democrat from west virginia and former presidential candidate and former utah governor jon huntsman, thank you for being here and joining forces here. i have to say when i was reading about this, and said, okay, goals to argue less and act more, and i'm thinking, yeah, but how do you go about that, particularly from the outside? why is an outside group needed? >> well, let me say from no labels' standpoint when i was a senator two years ago, i
. >> reporter: still, some conservative christians say the focus shouldn't be on guns, but on the environment giving rise to this violence. >> instead of having as the nra proposes a policeman in every school. getting a dad in every home. >> reporter: vice president biden said he's glad that evangelical groups participated in his meetings because in the past, they have been reluctant to engage on the gun issue." athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> time for a little introduction. i want you to take a look here. this is my cat, browser. he's at home right now watching the show, no doubt. but he's pretty cute and cuddly. i spoil him rotten, but could he be plotting something sinister? could he be plotting to kill me? doesn't look like it there. we'll talk about it next with the author of "how to tell if your cat is trying to kill you." about health care... s i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a
around policy uncertainty. there are many who believe that the uncertain environment that is prevalent in the nation's capital is adding to some of those concerns. we certainly hear from some of -- small-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. ther
don't know. you can't ignore the complex interplay between biology and environment when it comes to this illness. >> what about the ethnic factor? we always talk about the irish or the native american indians. is it lack of tolerance? what's the terms? is there a term for it? is there legacy? >> no, no, no. there's a genetic factor and there's an environmental factor. but the bottom line is we know how to deal with this. prevention, prevention, preen. nine out of ten addicts started when they were teenagers. if the brain is still developing and you hijack it with the use of experimentation of marijuana, drugs, you're -- >> you don't like these laws legalizing marijuana. >> no, i don't. i think we need the public health community to be -- weigh in here because we already know what the liquor industry and the tobacco industry have done to our country in targeting kids. and so we need to be mindful and not rush into this -- >> like joe camel, that kind of stuff. >> exactly. joe camel. liquor stores are in places where you know that there are people who are going to abuse liquor and
is going to be about to a large degree. he did something that was risky and the environment where you can ask anything, that's why it's called imam. and successful to get tens of thousands of people to register, and then on the election day ten thousands more. this went totally below the radar, and it was a huge success. >> john: and 9,000 of those on reddit asked him about legalizing weed. what was frustrating for you covering this campaign. >> thank god for denver because it would have been the most boring campaign in history. the most frustrating part is hundreds of journalists covering the same thing and writing the same thing and trying desperately coming up with something new while dealing with the obama re-election campaign. these guys know how to play pretty rough. they'll lie to your faces as good as anybody. how do you navigate that and get around it and not get sucked in so all you're doing pro whatever candidate propaganda you're covering. >> john: we could talk about this all night looking forward to the end of the last week of his first term, what do you see as the future of
record on the environment. the year, india and japan have grounded the dreamliner jets over safety concerns following a series of incidents. federal aviation ordered all of them taken out of service wednesday. european officials followed suit today. the 787 is the newest of a boeing and the company reportedly is depending heavily on its success. it's suffered from several issues including a fire on a plan bought -- park in boston an emergency landing in japan that had burn marks around the main battery. today marks the 100th birthday of the legendary media activist everett parker. active for more than six decades, parker is best known for spearheading the challenge to mississippi television station wlbt in the 1960's, which ultimately had its license revoked for attempting to squelch the voices of the civil- rights movement of the time. in a 2008 interview with "democracy now!" everett parker discussed his efforts to monitor racist television networks as founder of the office of communication of the united church of christ. >> i went down and i really looked at stations from new or
of statistics and the economic environment that we're in today? >> now, i wish i had an answer to that one. you know, i've said before that there is a highway into poverty today, and there's not even a sidewalk out. and there's very little, once you get there, and you are so there, that can be done to help you at this point in time. because there aren't the jobs, there aren't the resources, there aren't the credit limits that there used to be. so the real key here is, what can you do out there right now to prevent yourself from going into poverty? and i always say that there are three things. three things that if we could just learn to ask ourselves, before we spend a penny. number one, is it a need or a want? obviously, if it's a need, you have to buy it. if it's a want, can you just walk away? you have to get as much pleasure in saving as you do spending. this era of spending, spending, spending has got to go. and last but not least, we all have to get as much pleasu in saving as we do spending. so, you know, it's very interesting. >> suze, what if you're one of those people who's unemployed.
attacks, the united states is susceptible to that environment. it's not only here in the united states but u.s. interests around the world. and that's why the u.s. has to maintain or believes it has to maintain that presence there. there's no doubt that going forward many of these issues are going to come to the surface. afghanistan could find itself in a very bloody civil war. iraq after the u.s. withdrawal has not gotten necessarily better. there's still violence. there are still attacks. but to some extent u.s. interests are a little more secured as a result of what happened there in the eyes of, you know, the united states officials that pursued that war. so again, you could make the argument that in afghanistan something similar could happen. but there's no doubt a great deal of uncertainty, great deal of questions remain. as to whether or not the central government in afghanistan can actually control the military and preserve the security, integrity of that country. and that remains to be seen. >> if only we could predict the future. all right, ayman, good to see you. >> thanks a
to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is part of creating safe secure learning environments. and then being able to really look at the personnel that you have in your school that helps support students. from training for teachers in the classroom to the other adults who are in the classroom because there are so many adults there besides the classrooms the classroom teachers the school bus drivers, the janitors, you know, the shooting at the high school in california, it was a teacher and a campus supervisor who really talked down that student and prevented lots of further violence. that kind of training is critically important. i mean, look at in this time of crisis when states have slashed budgets and taken so many resources out of schools, some of those resources are school counsellors, school psychologists, social workers, and now, where you might have had a school counselor per school, maybe dealing with two or 300, some of the ratios now for school psychologists, for example, is one to 1,000. you can't possibly provide the kind of support
to accomplish those things in the current political environment. with the kind of enormous pushback he has gotten from both republicans in congress and from very intransigen right wing. people look at that and say let's put this into some context. you go back to that day in january in 2009 when the president was sworn in and you recognize we lost 750,000 jobs that month and every single month and where this economy has come and i think this go around folks are pragmatic but looking at that and saying, well now might be the time and the opportunity for the president to act in a different way. >> it seems like that persists. one of the things about the obama era is i think when we embarked upon it there seemed to be sort of two ways of reading the last four years. one was electing a black president and the normalcy that would bring that melissa was just talking about would be a net positive for race relations in america and the struggle for equality and the other aspect is the way electing a black president produced back lash and sometimes very highly racialized back lash. i wonder which of
have understood that in this environment, hopefully that, like mayors do, we look at solving problems. and right now, the environment is just not good to have that kind of discussion. we saw it with the fiscal cliff discussion. we saw when you get to last-second discussions, good decisions aren't made and really nobody wins in those because then you have to sort out what happened. i think the republicans are saying, listen, let's have a cooling-off period, let's figure out how we want to approach this. let's work on solutions. that's what mayors do all day long. we work on solutions. we get frustrated when the ideology becomes the bigger issue than solving these problems. we'd love -- if this reprieve results in congress being able to actually take action at some time other than 11:59, we'll be happy because the certainty of decision has more impact on the economies of our cities and on us than decisions that are made. business and people adjust to decisions, good decisions and bad decisions. what they can't adjust to is uncertainty. if that reprieve gives us a little bit more time to
into the international environment, which makes it more complex, but let me use that as a segue. we know and hear about economic impact repeatedly, but who speaks for the environment, and how can we keep that the boys drowned out as a difference for -- voice from being drowned out as a result of a difference of relationships? how do we close the cycle of latency and try to understand where we need information? >> let me start with a comment you made, which i found to be fascinating, that there is between a $11 and $30 for every dollar spent. an ounce of prevention is worth every cure. that is a 16 fold ratio. we know that. our policy has to put that in place. we need a baseline. of course we do. the only thing forcing the baseline is smart companies, and they may as well get a baseline, because they will show we started which dirty water, but there are no resources to get the baseline. we know we need to drill the northeast over the next couple days. -- decades. we need that baseline. we need it desperately, and we needed for human health as well. lots of different communities have different kinds of d
cliff was a friendly family discussion compared to this hatfield/mccoy environment that's unfolding with regard to spending. >> so you think this whole story is going to have some real heart-stopping moments for the markets? >> i think there will be huge consequences. recall that in the summer of 2011 the last time we faced this that the dow went down 1800 points in july and august. now, granted there were some other issues in europe that were a concern. but we could see some serious consequences as a result of these -- this inability to have a discussion on spending cuts. >> i know you're a bond specialist, but apple reducing their iphone orders and so forth. apple fell 3.5% today. $18 to 501. is this apple reduction in ipad orders, is this symbolic of an economy that's getting weaker? >> well, i think so. i think -- well, we have heard some people say that, yes, it's part apple. the company. but also, i think it is symbolic of just people not having enough certainty of what kind of money they will have in the future to spend on items such as what apple offers. >> at the same time,
provide a better safety environment for our kirn. >> now, rooiyan, it seems like e republ lip cans, and i noticed the congressman said we don't need them all, some republicans do sound like they are more open to possible gun legislation more than some of the far right. listen to this. >> should we look at improving our background check system? i'm willing to listen to what proposals come forward on that is this. >> there are some problems. and maybe these huge magazines even for someone who says, look, i just use an ar-15 for target practice. but do you really need to be shooting a silhouette? a shot a second or even quicker with that weapon? for what purpose? >> now, when you see a guy who, by the way last week was defending todd aiken, and when he's talking about do you really need a lot of the magazines that have the ability to shoot a lot of rounds, i mean, you're starting to see some cracks in the armor of the far right extremists here. >> right. i mean, you just simply do not need that. about that's the problem that these -- that these gun rights advocates have. when he asked that q
to create a partisan-free environment, and called "no labels" they are pledged to a simple proposition, stop fighting and start fixing. we'll discuss compromise and the chances for success with the no labels chairman, democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia and former republican governor of utah jon huntsman, next. she wants. now you can with new stayfree ultra thins. flexible layers move with your body, while thermocontrol wicks moisture away. keep moving. new stayfree. or treat gas with these after you get it. now that's like sunblock before or sun burn cream later. oh, somebody out there's saying, now i get it! take beano before and there'll be no gas. >>> with me now, senator joe manchin, democrat from west virginia and former presidential candidate and former utah governor jon huntsman, thank you both for being here, joining forces here. i have to say when i was reading about this, and said, okay, goals to argue less and act more, and i'm thinking, yeah, but how do you go about that, particularly from the outside? why is an outside group needed? >> well, let me say from no label
't be on guns but the environment giving rise to this violence. >> instead of having, as the nra proposes, a policeman in every school, our policy should be focused on getting a dad in every home. >> reporter: vice president biden said friday he is glad evangelical groups have participated in his gun policy task force meetings because in the past, they have been "reluctant to engage in the gun issue." athena jones, cnn, washington. >> you can see more about this story on our belief log at cnn.com/belief. >>> a maintenance shed in new york city's central park turned up a shocking discovery, a loaded cannon from an old british warship dating you to the revolutionary war. it's been sitting around for centuries. workers were cleaning the rust when they found the cannon still had gunpowder and a cannon ball. a spark or a flame could have set it off. >> this is an amazing surprise. it was there for so many years and people were sitting on it when it was a loaded cannon. >> technicians removed about two pounds of black powder and they have div posed of it at a gun range. what an amazing story. >
christians say the focus shouldn't be on gunnings but on the environment giving rise to this violence. >> instead of having as the nra proposes a policeman in every school, our policy should be focusing on getting a dad in every home. >> reporter: vice president biden said friday he's glad i n evangelical groups have participated in his gun policy task force meetings because in the past they have been, quote, reluctant to engage on the gun issue. athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> the president is promising action when it comes to curbing gun violence. the vice president even expected to endorse efforts to reinstate that assault weapons ban, but the opposition says that just isn't going to happen. t spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd includi
that the polls are shifting? >> i think the polls are shifting and the environment may be better, but the intensity of this issue, how strongly do people feel about it, is still on the side of the gun owner. so, what you have to do, the president and other also have legislation and regulations, we have to build a climate -- a political climate in this country where it's safer for politicians to support this legislation. and that is not an easy thing to do. but i think it's important to try. >> and i just want to outline some of the recent polls. they fascinated me. i don't know if i'm naive to this they seem to have significantly shifted on a number of different levels. when it comes to sat s ts t s s with gun laws, a "usa today" gallup poll suggested that 30% of those were dissatisfied and wanted stricter gun control. 43% were satisfied. 5% wanted less strict guns. when you break it down into specifics, that's what the president is doing today, the nationwide ban on semiautomatic handguns, 51% support that. and a nationwide ban on high capacity ammunition clips, that number is e
. one of the leaders of this market, banks. financials. can that last in this environment? >> i mean look banks have a long way that they fell and they've had a long pathway back to something circa 2006-2007. they sri lankan as a percentage of market gap in the s&p. they are no longer dominant. that's all for the best. we have a much more diversified market. we should. i wouldn't say that the banks need to lead this matter. they've done very well. >> who is going to lead the market? >> i think you'll have a market without leadership but that doesn't mean a market that doesn't go up. you have multiple sectors of strength. technology. be inning to see how amazon does. you have a global economy growing modestly. >> are you worry about apple? >> as a company? no. am i concerned about apple as a stock at 500, i will be glad if we talked less about apple. it's one company amongst many. anybody in silicon valley has to be worried about the fact that their franchise is of extremely short duration. >> boeing. this boeing story is creeping up, getting worse on a daily basis. would you get rid
're in a completely different environment, and obama did pretty well working from the outside in on the fiscal cliff thing, and now the sense is he is nott going to win on the assault bans. he might do better on the magazines. he is quite likely to get some sort of victory in terms of the background checks. why not run this up the hill, get a yes or no vote and build in political capital for future fights. >> future fights on unrelated issues or -- >> on this issue, but also building up sort of this whole reagan-esque argument. the richard newstat book about this, about the power of the presidency, it was kind of bill clinton's bible. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have
